Presidential Security: Fairly Serious

According to the New York Post, Twitter has seen a lot of assassination threats against Trump since his winning the election last week.

Leaving aside the fact that the number of threats on Twitter result in a calculator error when divided by those that are credible, I don’t think people have the slightest idea how tight security is around an American President these days.  People probably think it’s as simple as pulling a security guard’s gun like that idiot Brit did at a Trump rally some months back, but security around the US President is ramped up to somewhere around 13 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Before Barack Obama was elected everyone assumed any black president would be assassinated by a deranged, racist redneck.  Then Obama was elected and people assumed he would be assassinated by possibly the same deranged, racist redneck.  Or his brother-stroke-father.  I am of the opinion Obama wasn’t assassinated because his political opponents are not murderous hicks, but it would have been extraordinarily difficult to pull off anyway.

Give it another few weeks and rubbish like this will have died down and we’ll never hear of it again.

  1. “I am of the opinion Obama wasn’t assassinated because his political opponents are not murderous hicks”.

    I am of the opinion Trump will be assassinated because his political opponents have murderous deranged lefties in their ranks.

  2. Obama was not assassinated (at least to this point in time) because he was just the empty suit who did what he was told. Those who pulled his strings had no reason to remove him.

    The plan was Obama reducing America to near ruin and Hillary finishing it off with a flourish. And then the damned ordinary people who paid for it all went and got in the way.

    Trump however is not as safe as Obumble because in the end, there are far more lunatic lefties than sane ones, and despite the MSM continually pushing the meme of ‘right-wing extremists’ these are vanishingly small compared to what the left and its muslim friends can muster.

  3. @Watcher. Right wing extremists are much smaller than you probably believe they are by the simple fact many who are labelled as such are not right wing but left wing. There are some who perhaps we could call out and out racists and the like but they inhabit both the left and right. Can we actually call fascists right wing? Probably not much of what they believe is as much left wing as it is right. More so I would postulate.

    Right wing to me is someone who does not subscribe to any ideology, knows that the market place supplies our needs, believes that as long as the laws against doing harm to people and property are observed people should be allowed to get on with their lives in any way they choose. That respect for and tolerance of a person, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race and the like has to be earned and not just given and especially not be forced to give it To the left that probably makes me an extreme right winger. If so so be it and the ranks of extreme right wingers has just increased by one.

  4. Can it be true? Have all those rioters been spouting factual shite? I see reports that the counting of votes hass at last finished and that Trumpy McTrumpface got more votes than Hillary Criminal. If so, permit me a guffaw.

  5. “Can it be true?” I’ve had a quick look around the news sites, and I see no sign of it. What a pity.

    Indeed, I’m considered a bit of an extremist in the real world because I believe in absolute freedom of speech.

    Unless they can infiltrate the Secret Service I don’t think they’ll get anywhere near him. Lefties can’t even spell their protest banners properly, you think they could organise an assassination on a sitting President without first blabbing about it on Twitter?

  8. Doubtless there are a few murderous hicks among Obama’s political enemies – it’s just that none of their rather small number with both inclination and capability got close enough.
